Part Time Birding

I have very few daylight hours to devote to birding on weekdays, especially during the dark winter months.  Today I went out for a little less than an hour before work and another hour during lunch.   The sun sets here before I finish working, so there is no chance to get out after work.  I'm looking forward to each additional couple of minutes as the days get longer!

My list for the day is not too bad considering.....some days are better than others!
